More and more libraries in NJ are choosing to collect non-standard items, including (but certainly not limited to!) kitchen tools, seeds, sewing machines, vinyl records, toys and STEM kits, as well as cameras, game systems, wi-fi hotspots and more. A “Library of Things” serves to provide access to useful items to communities in need. Panelists will discuss their Libraries of Things, as well as the policies and procedures that need to be in place before such non-standard collections can be created.
